Tom Davis has enjoyed helping people learn about the outdoors for many years. He has led hikers and llamas in backcountry trips in western Wyoming. He has backpacked with groups in many mountain regions of the West- the Beartooths, Wind Rivers, San Juans, the "Bob", Yellowstone N.P., Yosemite NP, and the Cascades. He has organized successful lodge trips in Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, and Washington. Tom currently teaches human and environmental biology courses at Loras College in Dubuque, IA and leads field ecology trips with his students to Costa Rica. He enjoys day hikes, mountaintops, birdwatching, and wild huckleberries. Tom believes that respect for the natural environment comes from living and learning in it. He looks forward to meeting and learning from other outdoor enthusiasts and sharing his passion for keeping our natural environment safe for future generations.
